Piskopiano and Koutouloufari traditional villages
Two picturesque traditional villages located side by side are just waiting for you to explore them. They’re conveniently located in the Hersonissos area. Piskopiano lies just 4.5 km from Anna Maria Village at an altitude of 90 m in the northern foothills of Mt. Pyrgia. It is home of the 19th century Panagia Church and the historical 16th century Agios Ioannis Church which has interesting wall paintings. The village is an ideal spot to enjoy panoramic views of the verdant, olive grove-packed landscape and the sea in the distance.
5 minutes from there on foot is Koutouloufari, at an altitude of 100 m. Dating back to 1577, it is a jewel in the crown of the Pediada region. The stone houses, arranged amphitheatre-like on the hillside, with their arches and lintels above the doors and windows, picturesque paved lanes, historical Agios Vasilios Church and the unique view of Hersonissos bay are bound to impress.
